Sweet From Salt

From out of salty waters comes something sweet.
It walks on several legs but it has no feet.

Beneath hard exterior you'll find a treat.
Delicious morsels of succulent white meat.

You can broil or bake turn up the heat.
Dip it in butter that way's hard to beat.

Lobster is okay but it's not quite as sweet.
When it comes to me, crab's the best thing to eat.

Laid out before me as I sit in my seat.
Trying to stay clean is a difficult feat?

    "Joe's Crab Shack"-- if you go south in the USA :) Love the light touch to delicious mouth watering words. In SA we call "Lobster"-- "Crayfish"-- Crab is not big here. Anyway you look at it... I too am a fan of all shellfish
